Check out our calendar or events to see if a climate classroom will be popping up at your next conference.
Keeping abreast of the newest developments in climate change is essential to make timely, effective and sustainable decisions. Yet, adequate time and space for learning are rarely accessible for busy delegates, decision-makers and full-time working professional. This is why we have developed the Climate Classroom - a mobile learning space that ‘pops up’ at the center of major climate change conferences and related events. The Climate Classroom offers focused 45-min learning sessions on highly relevant climate change topics delivered by select experts in English and French.
During each session, the lecturer and the 20 participants will be equipped with professional head-sets through which they will be able to follow the lecture and engage in discussion.
A booklet is available to all participants at the beginning of each session, including a summary of the content and links to additional information. Participants completing the sessions will receive a UN CC:Learn pin and become part of the Alumni community.
The next edition of the Climate Classroom will be held at the 23rd Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP23 of the UNFCCC), which will take place from 6-17 November 2017, in Bonn, Germany. Stay tuned for details!
The first edition of the Climate Classroom took place at the Climate Studio in the Blue Zone of the COP22 and it included the following topics:
Paris Agreement (focusing on the Paris Agreement)
Climate Action (focusing on the NDCs)
Climate Finance (focusing on financing flows and instruments)
Circular Economy (focusing on the pathways to a low-carbon economy)
Climate Empowerment (focusing on climate change education and awareness raising)
